    I'm glad that Costco went with a set that I don't want. I've always had a hard time tracking their exclusives down at a price close to what they sold them for.

    It's unfortunate that these are figures I'm not interested in, as $32.99 (plus tax, of course) is a great deal for two voyagers. Well, that's Costco for you; hopefully we'll get Devy at a reduced price.

    Do you guys know if Autobot Ratchet is from the 07 movie or is it the 09 Desert version? Not that it matters, Im not buyin. I was just curious if you noticed any differences from the earlier releases?

    ... ... ...

    So back in the thread about the toy bio of Wideload, someone agreed with me about how THAT rivalry is as dumb as an ambulance VS an aircraft.

    ... And here we are.
    (Yes, I know - aircraft does not mean copter)

    No CostCo stores near me, so no dice for this.
    i wouldn't mind the grindor basically going for 10 bucks cheaper than normal for its class, to go with my Blackout, but no big deal.

    Ironhide vs. Grindor seemed more logical, to me.

    So now i am soooo stoked for the Ice Cream Truck versus Devs pack!
    it's gonna happen! i feel it.

    Nice, Ratchet and Greendoor is here !

    Yes, I actually have a friend who pronounced Grindor as "Green-Door". When he said that, I was bemused and thought what green colored door he was referring to, before it hit me that he meant the TF character.

    I still haven't stopped teasing him about it. Lol.

    I'm interested in getting the set. I got a dumb question. Do you actually have to be a member to purchase anything from Costco?

    It's been a while since I've been to Costco, and my membership is about to expire. But yeah, they pretty much check your membership card at the entrance to keep it to memebers.

    You could get Dormamu to get it for you if you don't want to shell out the additional $45 (or whatever it is now) for membership up front.
